2, 2A and 3A, Dag Hole Cottages, Dag Hole, Cheddar,
A Freehold mixed use property arranged over two floors in a sought after location in this Historic Town
Sold with Vacant possession
The unit will be sold with vacant possession but has successfully traded as the Cheddar Sweet Kitchen for many years and could continue to do so.
The enviable trading position benefits from excellent passing trade in the peak months.
We understand previously the business rates were in the region of £2,600 per annum. Small business relief is available (100% relief was given to Cheddar Sweet Kitchen)
Self contained one bedroom flat in good order with private access at the rear of the building.
The property occupies a prominent position within the popular village of Cheddar. Local amenities and services are all within close proximity including independent retailers, public houses and convenience stores. Bristol City Centre is approximately 20 miles away.
Scope to convert the existing building into 2 houses ( Subject to consents )
The vendors have approached the local authority with a pre app
PRE APP RESPONSE
Accordingly any application to charge the use of these properties to residential use would need to be supported by evidence (e.g. appropriate marketing) to show that there is no on-going demand for their continued commercial use and that the use of this commercial opportunity would not be detrimental to the vitality and viability of the commercial area.
Assuming this is accepted I do not think that there would be a further objection to the creation of 2 dwellings provided some amenity space can be provided for future occupiers. I note your point about parking - as this has accepted elsewhere in the Gorge I do not think it would be reasonable to object on the basis of a lack of parking.
Additional vacant space on the first floor that has scope ( subject to consents ) to convert into an additional studio flat or to extend the existing one bedroom flat to create extra space.
MIXED USE INVESTMENT
The property could continue in its current guise as a mixed use investment.
